Linux and the GIMP - II

I have been following the tutorials on the GIMP and found one on vignetting. The description of the technique is found here.

My starting point is the following color original.

Then I converted the Mode to black and white with a little contrast curve manipulation.

I RIP'd Ken Lee's Bronze quadtone colors from here.

Then I followed the vignette example in the tutorial to generate the following.

The image changes with each step and leads to something closer to what I first envisioned when I tripped the shutter on the wee-digi-snapper.

Next exercise? Dodging and burning an image using the increasingly powerful Linux and the GIMP!
